“David Smith was a fantastic choice to launch the Leicester Business Festival. He tailored the speech to the region, as well as having extensive national/internal knowledge on the economy.” – Tiffany Freeman, LLEP.

“David delivered a truly insightful speech at our conference yesterday. He managed to make business and the economy digestible for all the audience, as well as interesting thought process to take into the new year. I particularly enjoyed his ‘skipanomics’ theory – very clever.”  – David Simms, Managing Director, Trinity plc.
